] indeed. are you in good hands? >>> while much of the discussion last year over president obama's health care law focused on the individual mandate, less attention was given to the employer mandate and how it affects small businesses and low wage workers? some wendy's and taco bell franchises are now cutting back workers' hours in order to avoid having to provide health coverage. a requirement of the health care law that goes into effect next year. the law will require businesses with more than 50 full-time employees to offer health care or pay a $2,000 fine for not doing so. >> the parent company for olive garden and red lobster has also begun hiring more part-time workers, according to the "new york times". restaurants and hotels are among the industries likely to be squeezed the hardest by the law because they are low-wage industries that do not offer coverage to most of their workers. however, a study by the urban institute said complaints of many business owners were unfounded. while businesses with 100 to 1,000 employees may see cost increases, large businesses were unlikely to be

over for a year and a half. now i understand moral high ground. it's with us every day. let's look at health care. today there was an op-ed in "the wall street journal" about the cost of obama care. there's continuing articles on the cost of dodd-frank, transactions for real estate. in the end, the moral high ground is a very big argument. steve liesman's center piece was, how the spin, so to speak, is going to be about the word default. and he's absolutely right. there's a certain default on interest payments. that's a legal default. but when you don't send the checks to people on social security or medicare or you don't send checks to veterans or you don't keep veterans hospitals open, that's a moral issue. it's going to be impossible to beat that. and in the end it comes down to a philosophical argument nobody really wants to have. and when we have it, people make fun of the argument. but the argument is, socialism. to help the collective by doing something to the few is the very cornerstone of socialism. whether right or wrong. there's a moral high ground that we're that going

in price. the year rising. we are back now. i want to get your reaction, if i may, as to what is your reaction to these reports that the white house, the obama administration was cautioning the algerian government on how to respond to this hostage taking and this group of terrorists? >> i think that is probably exactly right. i think the algerians are very experienced people at fighting, and they don't give a lot of time to develop. i think it is probably very crude to say that i think the algerians value that gas production more than the people that were being held hostage. there were very worried about the plan being destroyed. i think that is why they moved right away. >> they were concerned, and i heard it in my debate. the americans and the french could do it. there was a draw flying. special forces moving. they looked very concerned that we would go in and therefore they could not absorb a politically. they went. lou: ignored by washington, european capitalists. >> what i think the algerians understood, knowing what they know about those g how this, if they don't terminate the i

our particular feelings are. here's another question that we should be asking ourselves now. 40 years from now, historians will be looking back on our time. or 60 years from now. and what will they say about how we responded to this? it's not just about president obama. it's about all of us. >> or how we didn't respond to it. >> we're all on a dock here. and i think that's the question that we have to ask ourselves. and it has to be asked across the political and the cultural spectrum including the people who feel that they have a right to own an assault weapon and the people in their community who feel that they don't have a right to. there has to be this dialogue across the country in small western communities, in the south and in the big cities as well. as reverend al knows, there's no greater carnage from guns than in the inner cities of america. >> absolutely. >> 506 homicides last year in chicago, most of them in the inner city. >> i've just been reading about -- you all remember nickel mines, the shooting there, which was actually a handgun. it highlights -- and that was, i don

know that there is anywhere near true. >> i think barack obama agreed with me, the debt ceiling is there for a reason. it forces us to have this discussion. if we didn't have it, we would blow through it like we did for many years. yes, we're doing it differently now. we're talking about the debt ceiling in term of ways to have a discussion and reduce spending. is that different than it has been over the last 30 years? yes, but thankfully so. maybe if we had these discussions for the last 30 years we wouldn't be looking at $6 trillion in debt. we've done it to ourselves but this is the future and perhaps rightly so until we get things straightened out. >> we'll keep a close eye. thanks for coming to the camera. >> thanks for having me. >> still, the cost of america's crumbling of infrastructure. we're back in a moment. >> announcer: this cnbc program is sponsored by audi, truth in engineering.
